Huawei Honor 8x is a very affordable phone. Last year’s Honor 7x was a huge success and so this phone brings a lot of excitement. It is a great mid-tier phone at a very affordable price. Its value for money is also very impressive. Honor 8x price in Nepal is expected to be around NRS 33,000.
The design of Honor 8x is refreshingly new. The back of the phone is all glass but two different textures. Both textures reflect light in a slightly different way and combined look amazing. The fingerprint sensor is rear mounted as most people like it. It is fast and handy. The bottom of the phone has space for a headphone jack, speakers, and a micro USB port. The 6.5″ display upfront looks great. It is a notched display however the side bezels are thin. Due to this, the phone has a higher screen to body ratio than the likes of One Plus 6 and Note 9.
Talking about the features of 8x first comes the video enhancement which steps up the contrast while watching videos and glare minimization so that the display is clear on a bright sunny day. It also has eye comfort mode for eye protection. For better gaming, it has a GPU turbo feature which boosts the graphics performance of the phone while playing games and the improvement is quite noticeable. Looking at the hardware the 3720 mAh battery with the Kirin 710 chip gives a good endurance time.
Camera wise the phone has an AI feature which captures interesting photos. It is a 16+2 MP dual setup and photos come out great in the day, the colors are bold and the shadows are darker and details are present on all part of the image. There is portrait mode but the most intriguing feature of the camera would be the ‘Night Mode’. What it basically does is captures the best parts of the image at different exposure allowing you to hold the phone steady for few seconds and minimizing the blur with AI stabilization. The photos at night mode are very impressive and photos are on par with more expensive devices.
